Ride Removal & Current Location


Built for wonderland in 1985 by DanFab engineering, the Tasmanian Devil was slightly smaller in diameter than the other explorers they built and had the capability to go backwards, for whatever reason wonderland chose to operate it in one direction only.

Wonderland 1985 staff ride spec's: (to help staff remember the name of the ride)

Note the reference to 22 gondolas above!
Taz had 20, is this why taz was slightly smaller in diameter than the others explorers built?
Do the other explorers have 22 gondolas?
More investigation needed!
Please email me if you would like to investigate this for Wonderland History.
